The Raven

The Raven was the first of Holiday World's wooden rollercoasters, and set the standard for what was to come.

It takes riders on a thrilling flight through the trees, speeds through a 120ft long dark tunnel and swoops low over Lake Rudolph, mimicking the flight of the raven featured in the famous Edgar Allan Poe poem it is named after.

The Raven was designed and built by Custom Coasters International, and features trains from Philadelphia Toboggan Company.

Although nowhere near the longest of Holiday World's coasters, The Raven provides a great experience and is a favourite amongst park guests. It topped Amusement Today's list of the world's best wooden rollercoasters from 2000 to 2003, and was awarded ACE Roller Coaster Landmark status in 2016.
